“Omar Musa writes hard, beautiful poems about things that are true” 
Kate Tempest
A collection of love poems and fierce raps, Millefiori is Omar Musa’s third book of poetry. Both dream-like and gritty, it also includes scans of draft poems in Musa’s notebook. Heartbreak, cocaine, colonial violence, memory and cave paintings: this is a world full of unbearable beauty and brutality.
“Fierce, lyrical and intimate: Omar Musa's poetry sets words aflame” 
Helen MacDonald, author of H is for Hawk
“Each poem in Musa’s Millefiori beats with a large heart” 
Gregory Pardlo, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry
